Personalised Induction Programme

Every NQT must have a Personalised Induction Programme. The core of the programme is regular (at least fortnightly) meetings between the NQT and their Induction Tutor.


The OTSA NQT Induction Handbook describes all the elements that must be included in the Personalised Induction Programme, as well as including all of the documents that must be completed as part of the Induction process.


Copies of the completed documents must be retained by the NQT and their Induction Tutor. The Appropriate Body may request copies of the documents at any time as part of its Quality Assurance responsibility.
